the genius: rule breaker
2013 variety kr


Thirteen players compete in various games trying to outsmart each other in all ways possible. In the end one player will remain, gaining the title of 'The Genius'. Each episode is split into the 'main match' and the 'death match'. In the main match all players compete for immunity. The person ending up in last place will together with a nominee compete in the 'death match' to find out who gets eliminated.

The two are game shows in which the participants have to use their mind to solve problems using their deduction skills as well as their social skills. Of course, in both shows there is a money prize at stake.

Both shows very much remind of each other, featuring intrigues between people, centring around games in which the players have to trust each other, lie to each other and win to survive and see the next round. The two shows also have a mysterious host whose face is covered.

I really like this show... because its tv adaptation of LIAR GAME!!!!! And it's not important, that creators deny that it is a plagiarism. But we know, that it is a LIAR GAME!

I'd say this kinda started a new generation of variety shows where it's really only about your brain, your luck and your social skills. No one cares about idols and your background.

I loved it, it was really entertaining and exciting!
I'm sooooo happy Jin Ho won!!! He deserved it as he really was the smartest of them all! I was kinda frustrated that Eun Ji was there for so long as she only stuck with whom she thought would be best and rarely used her brain to solve the problems. But I'm glad they could get rid of Kim Gu Ra so fast! His attitude pissed me off!
What I found quite petty of all of them was how they always judged Jin Ho. The cast always made statements like "don't trust him", "look at this eyes, they're on fire" or "he will betray you easily" although Jin Ho was the most loyal amongst them! He always played fair (in contrast to a few others~~).
